Until she learns that her mother requires a new medication for her life-threatening medical condition.
When she discovers that her fiancé, Damien Taylor, may be cheating, she breaks off their engagement. In the midst of healing, she becomes captivated with Wesley Dunbar, a wealthy pharmaceutical businessman that may hold the cure for her mom and Sasha’s wounded heart. Although she attempts to resist Wesley’s romantic overtures, his charm, status, and kindness open a window of opportunities to consider. While Damien tries to woo her back into his life, her involvement with Wesley becomes complicated. A surfeit of lies and deception causes a web of mixed emotions as she struggles to help her mom and determine whether Damien or Wesley is the real love of her life.

We find her quite a hard motivated worker as a top sales rep for Wexel Pharmaceuticlas, Inc and having the love of her life her fiance, Damien Taylor why wasn't this enough for her? After Sasha find her fiance maybe cheating why does she break off their engagement before she really finds out if anything had happened? From this situation along with her mother being ill and needing a new medication why does she become so captivated with a wealthy pharmaceutical businessman by the name of Wesley Dunbar? Well, before all of this can be explained there is still a question and that is why did Sasha have trust issues with the men in her life from her father, fiance, and now another charmer? I loved how this author brings this story out so well in this read. How will this all turn out for Sasha as 'a surfeit of lies and deception will cause a web of mixed emotions?' The reader will get a well rounded story as we see things will change mightily for Sasha as she will finally be able to open her eyes to finally see what is going on all around her. From her job, friends, her father and even Damien it will be a delightful read in seeing Sasha change for the good as she journeys into maturity coming from 'betrayal, friendships, love interest, her family and career.' In the end the reader will get quite a good read from "Two Steps Past the Altar" which presents so well a wonderful story of 'redemption, forgiveness, friendship and love.'
